More news from Djinnie! Good news!

Hello everyone!

I was very excited to receive a really long and lovely email from Djinnie! She is now in a hospital on the coast of France. Djinnie spoke about it so eloquently, it would be silly for me to try and paraphrase it, so here is an exerpt from her email:

"They are a unique hospital in every way, they work constantly on the fact that one med does not fit all, which has always been my constant beef. I am attached ( and don't I know it) to this machine which has a tower level of drugs, they are gradually mixed synergistically until the chemical balance is 100% to work well within my body. I have never seen that before, have you? Anyway sometimes a spanner gets thrown in the works and we have to do a remix. It's amazing! Well I think I am almost there, I still need stabilising around 3.00 am usually, but it's a close thing now. To be without that agony, I can't tell you the difference, I have never felt so much pain, not something I will ever forget, I can tell you!  I have so much news, without getting into a War & Peace sized email it will be difficult to relay it right now.  The service here is second to none, firstly French Hospitals never have a perfect time limit to send you home, you stay until everything is back on an even keel, for me that is at the pain angle, but I have met so many off shoots of little agencies that want to help, it is a big bonus. We have located a heart problem which is top of the list of priorities this week. Have to take an ambulance trip to some coastal retreat for that one. Might pick up an ice cream on the way,lol!

The food is great, the staff are the most caring, loving I have ever come across, and the services are out of this world. I get massages every day, along with those today I am having reflexology and a facial, can you believe that!!! It will boost my image."

 

She asked me to let everyone here know how well she is feeling. She ended her message to say that she has regained the will to fight and signed it "a revitalized Carolyn".

 

I know everyone here will just as elated to hear this wonderful news. To feel no more pain, to have a smile on her face again. My/our prayers have been answered.

 

Big hugs and sweet dreams to all!

 

Jojo

    Wow, France!

    I didn't know French hospitals were so awesome!  This is great news for sure.  I can't think of a nicer place for DJ to be; on the French coastline, eating French food... God bless her!  I love it!

    THANK YOU

    Jojo:

    what a great post and turn of events; the pain she has been enduring has left and now she can deal with things better.

    the heart issue they have uncovered may improve her major problem with the node that was suffocating her.

    thank you so much, JoJo and please let her know that she is alwayes in my thoughts

    Kind of like the fairy tale...

    The Princess and the Pea.  She had to have a lot of lousy matresses before she found one she could sleep on.  I'm so happy for her, and thank you, JoJo for conveying the good news.

It's so funny because I was JUST thinking about Djinnie.......just wondering how she is doing, etc., and 10 minutes later logged on and your post was at the top of the heap!!! I love thinking of Djinnie getting a massage and much love in a lovely French hospital on the coast of France. Hey! Let's all go!!! Facials too? and that machine she describes, mixing up doses, scanning, etc...,that sounds like something I want to know more about! Dear Djinnie, you go, girl!!

    Thank you for posting this.  If anyone personifies the words of Jimmy Valvano--"Don't give up. Don't ever give up.", it is Djinnie and FoxHD.  Keep fighting.

    I have heard a little more

    I have heard a little more from Djinnie. A complication is that her lymph is leaking fluid into her heart. Yesterday they were taking her and drawing the fluid from her heart. I guess it has been causing her blood pressure to spike, and occasionally she would faint. Who knew that a lymph could complicate your health so much? I haven't heard from her since. But her internet access is very sporadic. I will post as soon as I hear.

    Hugs
